Mixing Chalk Paint® Colors to Make “Purples”

Pantone’s color of 2018 is called Ultra Violet!  We decided to play with some different Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan colors to create different shades of violet or purples.  See the results below or Check out this YouTube video on The Purple Painted Lady Channel by Courtney and Trish at The PURPLE Painted Lady mixing up various violets and shades of purple.

Please feel free to save these to your Pinterest boards!!!!

VIDEO OF ANNIE USING WHITE WAX:

Annie Sloan White Chalk Paint® Wax can be applied directly onto wood to create a limed look, and it also has a wonderful effect on painted pieces. “Think of a piece which has been gracefully, subtly faded by sunlight – a piece left in a sunny spot, a terrace in Tuscany,” says Annie. See Annie Sloan White Chalk Paint® Wax in use HERE.

The Purple Painted Lady is extremely excited about the White Wax.

Chalk Paint® for outside projects!

Yes! You can use Chalk Paint® for outside projects!

As in shutters, doors, porch floors, staining concrete, painting barns, outdoor furniture, swingsets, birdhouse, concrete benches, mailbox posts, (and I can go on and on…)

One of our amazing customer’s who owns a local consignment shop near us called Lu’s Back Door loves the color Napoleonic Blue.

Napoleonic Blue OPEN QUART

If interested in buying Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® on-line- visit HERE. (We ship same day and offer the lowest flat rate shipping fees)

Napoleonic Blue is a deep true blue that is the color of fresh picked blueberries. And is a great color for your painting pantry since it is – by default – a primary color!

So, Teresa used Napoleonic Blue to paint her front door and house shutters a year ago. What do you think?

PAINTING DECKS:

The Purple Painted Lady is also so impressed with this pool/deck transformation done using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.

The Purple Painted Lady Deck Pool Transformation Chalk Paint Annie Sloan Freeman

 

the painted penny completed this using 5 quarts of Graphite and 1 quart French Linen for the deck around pool and upper deck. Great coverage and great results. Next, she is moving onto the fencing, planter dividers, bar and pool.

When painting decks- please make sure to power wash off any loose paint or old stain prior to your project. Thinning the paint with water is also suggested. If painting an outside area like this- do it when there is no rain in the forecast for at least 24 hours too.

OUTSIDE FLOWER POTS:

At The Purple Painted Lady – the flower pots in front of our Macedon store were just ……pea green. Not a bright or eye catching green…plain ole’ …pea green. So…a little Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan to the rescue!

YES! You can use it on plastic without a primer or a top coat outside and it will last!!!!! A little Pure White, Florence, Provence and Burgundy (mixed with Pure White to achieve that Berry color)

So see…..Yes- Chalk Paint® can withstand the crazy weather elements in northern NY!

Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan – how to make it a darker Navy (and other colors)

You know, there is a reason that Annie Sloan chooses to not have 57 colors or 75 colors in her paint spectrum. And that is because Annie knows her colors- and from her palette of selected colors we do offer- you can mix almost any custom color you would like.

One color that is a must to have is Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. It is a deep true blue that is the color of fresh picked blueberries- perfect for creating the Union Jack flag!

Annie Sloan’s Napoleonic Blue is a wonderful color to have in your painting tool box essentials since it is – by default – a primary color!

Napoleonice Blue Sample Board - Copy

Napoleonic Blue is wonderful to mix with other colors, such as:

Peacock Blue Chalk Paint®: Mix 2 Napoleonic Blue + 1 part Antibes Green + 1 part Aubusson Blue

Peacock Blue
Step 3 custom color peacock

If looking for a darker TRUE navy- try mixing a little Barcelona Orange with Napoleonic Blue:

COLOR MIXER TOOL:
With all of these “color mixing” ideas- I wanted to make sure you knew about the virtual color mixing tool available on our website. With permission from Annie Sloan, the “Mr. Purple Painted Lady” wrote the proprietary program for the Paint Mixer. It is meant to be a playful tool that allows you to get an idea of what a custom color will look like when you mix multiple Chalk Paint® colors. This tool is not an accurate, exact representation of an outcome- but mathematically it is pretty darn close. Your monitor quality does play into that equation. And just remember though- nothing compares to working with your local stockist and playing with real Chalk Paint®. With all that said…I hope you have fun using this Paint Mixer! Check out the Paint Mixer HERE

Please visit our website if interested in ordering Chalk Paint®. We have it available for $34.95 per quart, we offer low/flat rate shipping and it always ships same day (as long as Pete, our UPS guy has not come already!)

In fact- there are many reasons we think buying through us is the best. Read THIS little post about what sets The Purple Painted Lady apart from the rest.

Lastly, we share a lot more information to help you get the most functionality out of your Chalk Paint® on our Facebook page. Consider checking it out by clicking HERE. While there- kindly consider LIKING us.

Memorial Day 2014 (Shop Schedule)

Happy Memorial Day Everyone.

For many- it is a day off. For me personally- I work 6 days a week- every week- but Sundays and Holidays are sacred to me. If I was to be brutally honest though- I guess what helps me to actually sit back and relax- is that neither UPS or Federal Express work those days. Striking a balance in life- is something I struggle with- always have.

This weekend I reflect on all of those men and women who made the greatest sacrifice of all- their lives. There have been various “Memorial Day’s” established throughout the last couple hundred years, but on May 26, 1966, President Johnson signed a presidential proclamation naming Waterloo, New York, as the birthplace of Memorial Day.

I live about an hour away- and I think we may go and visit the festivities happening there. On Memorial Day- I plan to visit my father’s grave and place flowers and a flag there for him. He served in the Korean War on a ship called the USS Perry.

HOLIDAY SHOP SCHEDULE:
The Purple Painted Lady will be CLOSED in Macedon and Syracuse on Sunday, May 25th and Monday, May 26th. UPS and FedX are off also, so all on-line orders will ship out on Tuesday, May 27th.

And speaking of orders and ….paint- I love how patriotic the colors of Emperor’s Silk, Pure White and Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® look! Many people often ask about the plastic paint storage bottles that I show the paint in. They contain a whole quart and have an easy dispenser on the top. If interested in purchasing one- visit HERE.
